Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

This Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement, drafted by the DEI Committee of the Board of Directors in collaboration with faculty and staff, was unanimously adopted by the NPES Board. (August 2022)

NPES embraces and celebrates the diversity of our community through our mission, curriculum, and practices. As a result, we:

  • Act intentionally to create an equitable and affirming environment for our students, caregivers, faculty, and staff
  • Foster a sense of belonging for each of our learners and all members of our community
  • Value multiculturalism and the role of diverse perspectives in our teaching and learning
  • Guide students to develop a robust understanding of themselves and the world around them
  • Teach and role model how differences can enrich our community, deepen learning, and promote a more equitable, just, and productive society for all
